  6. Hi there fellow Aussie. You've certainly created a wonderful pool area. Your potted plants look terrific scattered around ... they add some great colour!

  7. I can see why you liked that photo for inspiration! You created a nice group of potted plants yourself at pool side - very pretty.

  8. The pool area is really beautiful - very nice containers. I like your take on the inspiration photo, even better than the inspiration photo! And I'm jealous that it's summer where you are! It's only about 7 degrees Fahrenheit here today!
    Blessings, Beth

  12. Your blooms captured me and sucked me into your lovely blog! Just what I needed to see today with all the white snow covered landscape around these parts this time of year! Sydney Australia - is it warm there right now? Is it warm there all year round? Well, I've followed your blog and I hope you'll stop by my blog sometime and maybe follow me too :)
